Discover how drawing, mindfulness, and Dutch paintings of everyday life can help you to appreciate your own daily experiences.

In this workshop, artist Clare Barton-Harvey will guide you in basic mindfulness practices, including a short meditation and mindful drawing exercises. The session offers a playful exploration of how mindfulness can help you to shift from 'doing' to 'being', stimulating presence of mind, concentration, and appreciation of beauty.

You don’t need any experience to join. The day is suitable for beginners and those with experience looking to develop their drawing or mindfulness practices.

This event is part of a national Slow Art Day.
